Great Smoky Mountains - High Elevation

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Approach & presentation is the name of the game here. These fish don't often get overly selective on fly patterns, but they spook easily and won't tolerate a bad drift!

Fish upstream, dress in earth-tone clothing, and keep a low profile. Stay back and make longer casts in slow pools. Get closer and keep as much line off the water when fishing pocket water.

Seven-day forecast 

Looks like a pretty hot week ahead. Chance of afternoon thunderstorms nearly every day - hopefully they will help with water temperatures and levels.
